Contracts signed for UK’s largest fertiliser plant

Caddick Construction has been appointed to build Yara International’s new manufacturing plant in East Yorkshire, which will on completion be the UK’s largest fertiliser factory.

Located in Howden, the flagship development will include the construction of a state-of-the-art manufacturing plant, warehouses, distribution facilities and offices.

The new 27,468m2 development, which is aiming for a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating, will enable Yara to double production of its YaraVita speciality crop nutrition products and biostimulants, which are vital for future food security and mitigating climate change.

Caddick’s construction of the new plant is expected to reach completion next summer, followed by a period of fit-out works, with the new facility expected to be operational by the end of 2025.

Paul Dodsworth, Caddick Construction Group Managing Director, commented: “Yara’s new manufacturing plant is not only important for the partners involved, ourselves included, but it is also vital to the region’s manufacturing industry and we’re very proud to be leading the delivery of a development that will boost the region’s industry, job market and economy.

“Understanding our client’s ambitions, their investments in research and development, and their production processes all underpin our appointment to the project, and we look forward to applying our manufacturing expertise to this truly exciting project on behalf of Yara International.”
